Oh yeah! I have a blog!

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

I need to post something here more often.

Most of my little bit of free time on the web has been elsewhere, at places like:

Aside from the above, I’ve also spent a good amount of time working on SUSE Studio (which is currently in alpha, but still awesome).

By-the-way: the photos above are recent uploads of mine. Some are from not-so-long-ago; some are from a while back.

You can find the above pictures—and many others—at my Flickr photo stream.

To see photos from around the globe of people participating in Hack Week, check out the Hack Week flickr group.

Also, make sure to Digg the site too. (:

harvesting planets

Saturday, June 9th, 2007

If you like to read a lot of open source based planets, then check out my aggregation (and uniqification) RSS feed that I cobbled together in Yahoo! Pipes.

Open Source Planets RSS

Currently, it grabs from the following:

  • Planet GNOME
  • Planet KDE
  • Planet SUSE
  • Graphics Planet
  • Gimp Layers
  • Planet Inkscape

Any other good suggestions? (:

If you’re interested, you can also check out the pipe’s page too.

Update: I added the feeds suggested in the comments as pipe sources.

Blog Wiidesign!

Saturday, December 30th, 2006

Instead of going for a complete overhaul, I tweaked my blog a bit. It’s similar, yet a little cleaner with the sidebar stuff down at the bottom.

The BIG news is, though, that I added Wii support to my blog. It’s quite useless, as I doubt tons of people will be surfing over to my website using their Wiis, but I figured, “Why not?”

If you want to make your website a little more Wii friendly, just drop the following in your document’s <head></head> area:

    <script type="text/javascript">
      window.onload = function() {
        // Wii detection (for CSS tweaking)
        if (navigator.platform == 'Nintendo Wii') {
          document.body.className += ' ' + 'os-wii';

Then, you can go crazy in your stylesheets by adding body.os-wii {} and derivates, like body.os-wii #content { font-size: 18pt; width: 100%; } or body.os-wii #footer { font-size: 16pt; }

This is just my little belated Christmas gift to all you fellow webmonkeying Nintendo nerds. *smile*

(Oh, and feel free to use the above however you want…)

To Celebrate the arrival of Firefox 2.0, I’m presenting a photo I took of the real-life Firefox.

Congratulations, Firefox team!

Straw poll: Javascript and your browser…

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Recently, I have been wondering about people’s stances with regards to the dependence of Javascript on the Internet at large — and for web apps in particular.

  1. Do you have Javascript enabled by default in your browser?
  2. If not, why?
  3. Also, if you do not, do you selectively enable it for particular sites?
  4. Has the “ajaxification” of the ‘Net changed your opinion on Javascript?
  5. Do you consider yourself a power-user of computers? (Rank yourself on a scale of 10, with 10 being expert)
  6. Do you consider yourself a Web power user/viewer?
  7. What browser do you use?

This is a totally unscientific questionnaire, but it still should have interesting results (provided people leave comments)…
